And we are really happy with the results! There are a few tiny details and accessories missing, but you can get the general idea.
|We made little hashmarks along the curve and I used a spongebrush|
to paint the stitches along the seams
|Don't look too close at my freehand work. :)|
|Jessie went back and added some shading for "holes" to add some dimension to the stitches.|
|You can see the navy portion of the wall in this picture,|
but no chair rail yet.
|Jessie had a little fun with the name above the hutch using|
some little baseball figures from his collection, and the 3ft Chipper Jones
bobblehead on the floor. You can see the finished chair rail in this pic.
|The piece above the closet says "play ball". The toddler|
jersey is a Smoltz jersey. And the space to the right
is for the custom wall art below...

Overall, we are so pleased with how Wesley's room turned out. Every time I walk by I have to peak in or go look around for a minute (I know that Jessie does it too). Now, that his room is complete, we are looking forward to bringing our little man home!
I couldn't resist...I have to include a picture of my diaper bag that I am super excited about using!! Jessie surprised me with this bag for Christmas!

While in the hospital, I asked the nursery if they could get Wesley's handprint on a baseball I brought with me. The nursing staff at our hospital was so great...have been for all three of our children. They got the perfect print of Wesley's little hand! I want to have a plaque made with his name, birthdate, birthweight and length. But for now, this is how it is displayed in his room.
